# Homework Help: Color band colors for 1kΩ resistor

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What are the color band colors and associated band values for a 1kΩ resistor

3. The attempt at a solution
resistor color codes are read like so:
ab*10^c±tol
1kΩ=10*10^2
a=1, b=0, 10=c

Now I get confused. What should the tol be?

And just in case you have other questions about the color codes:

Hey! Is this some kind of joke?

A 0Ω resistor, marked with a single black band.​

hmmmm.... Sure would make the homework helper's jobs a lot easier. :tongue2:

"I have a circuit with 6 resistors in parallel and 3 resistors in series, all are zero ohms. How do I find the equivalent resistance?"

tol = Tolerance. The problem did not ask for the tolerance, so you can ignore that for this problem.
